Megadeth and Slayer make nice-nice, decide to make money off each other.

Okay, last bit about Slayer for awhile. Honest. Pinky swear, okay?

News of Slayer and Megadeth touring the world together may be old news now, but nothing has been said about an American version..... until yesterday. The two titans will be doing the U.S. proud when they start decimating cities early next year on the American Carnage. As a little icing on the cake, they'll be bringing their old buddies Testament on the road with them. Ladies and Germs, that's about the closest we'll come to a modern day Clash of the Titans tour. Plus, there's gonna be a limited amount of $10 tickets going on sale, so snag those bad boys up quick!

Now this is one of the positives of capitolism. If you ever put both these bands in the same room, there's a pretty good chance that there's gonna ba an honest-to-goodness fistfight between Dave Mustaine and Kerry King. Or the universe will implode due to the proximity of their egos. One or the other. However, with the economy the way it is, and the very real money making possibility of the tour itself, both bands will keep their distance from one another while in the arenas and entertain the fan's craziest wet metal dreams.

Here's the real question: how long will it take Metallica to realize what a money coup it would be to take all these guys on tour and even add in Anthrax for fun?

Answer: who knows? Ain't like it's ever gonna happen...... maybe.
